Overview

Rich Man's War - Poor Man's Fight, is the story of two Scot - Irish families who left Ireland for the promise of a better life in America. While accurately set in time and place, this is not a battle by battle account of Civil War history. It is the story of a determined people who were pressed into a war by a country who spurned their kind and used them as pawns so their wealthy sons could be kept out of harm's way. One family, a young man who hoped to use his family trade as a sword smith entered through the port of New York in 1862. New York was in the midst of the conscription riots as Abraham Lincoln's cabinet desperately fought to fill the ranks of an Army to hold the Union together. A second family left Dublin for New Orleans. They arrived as organizers tried to convince young Irish men that the South's fight for independence from the federal government is a struggle that the Irish should understand. Fate brings the young men together on opposing sides of a Virginia battlefield where they collapse in exhaustion and come to realize the irony of their meeting and the cruel circumstances that brought them together as enemies.

    More than a Civil War History book! Great story..Great price..Try it, you'll like it.

    I am not a big Civil War history buff, but this book was so engaging and full of background information and even romance that anyone will find something to love. Two Irish families set out to find a better life in the United States and end up on two separate sides of this country. Yet through struggles and difficulties, both find success and love at the end of a bitter war that neither one really understood or believed in. Even with a full 600 pages, I was able to read it over a long weekend because I just didn't want to put it down. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys action packed, historically accurate life stories where true love wins in the end.
